Cons: Veg meal options
Cons: The seats provide very little space which is especially bad when traveling for many hours, the food options were quite bad, this is the only flight that i've been asked to take my headphones off during take off and 30 mins to an hour before landing and it makes no sense, the crew was quite rude and not helpful and overall the quality of the aircraft is quite dated and was left in a bit of disarray.
Pros: The price was good

Pros: Terrible service
Cons: Terrible service
Pros: Good service overall. Great meal.
Pros: this leg of our trip was fine. it was average. our experienced was soured and biased by how badly China Eastern handles customer service before and after the flight

Cons: Serve water more frequently in between the 2 meals
Pros: friendly helpful crew
Cons: They routed me Kota Kinabalu-Shanghai-Quingdao-San Francisco, yet could not check my luggage all the way nor issue boarding passes for all legs. Luckily I had 4 hrs transit in Shanghai, had to get 24hrs visa, claim my bag, recheck it to Quingdao and there recheck it to SFO. Quite an ordeal

Cons: We got problem when checking in, there was a group of people that didn’t allow us to do check in, and forced us to pay some amount to have another flight. Then we mis the flight.

If Kayak authority see this message, please guide if we could have any compensation from missing the flight. We totally disappointed with Shanghai airport Thank you
Pros: Appreciated the snack

Flight from Taipei to Shanghai

Terrible customer service
Pros: They wouldn't allow me on my flight from Shanghai to Los Angeles one an a half hours before my flight because they said that the gate had closed an hour and a half before the flight was set to depart. And the flight was delayed for an hour total Garbage. They sent me to a hotel in Shanghai and said I was booked the following morning. When I arrived the next day they didn’t have any information about my situation and wanted to charge me for a new business class seat.
Cons: Customer service

China Eastern comparable with other asian airlines
